Pampers Swaddlers and Pampers Baby Dry are both great options for new borns and young toddlers. However, there are some very important differences between Swaddlers and Baby Dry that are worth knowing before you buy.
Below is a quick comparison table to help you make a decision, but I will be diving into the details below to help you make the best decision.
The Main Differences Between Swaddlers vs Baby Dry
Here are the main differences between the two Pampers diapers.
Why Pampers Swaddlers Are Better
When you read all the reviews on Pampers Swaddlers one of the biggest things that stand out is how soft they are. Pampers call it “blankie softness” and it is the softest Pampers diapers on the market. These Pampers diapers also have a heart-shaped liner that adds even more to the soft feel of them, taking it to the next level in terms of comfort.
The Baby Dry diapers also have a very soft feel, and your baby will certainly be happy in them. However, the Swaddlers are just that extra bit softer!
Pampers Swaddlers has a handy yellow stripe down the front of the diaper called the wetness indicator. It helps you to quickly figure out if the diaper is full or not. It turns from yellow to blue once the diaper becomes full.
Swaddlers diapers have them on all sizes – from newborn to toddler, whereas the Pampers Baby Dry only has them on newborn sizes.
As you may know, newborns are quite sensitive and diaper rash is an issue you just might have to deal with. That is why Pampers Swaddlers are better in this area. They have added an “absorb away liner” to help pull the wetness away from your baby’s skin. This is great because the moisture is one of the main reasons for diaper rash!
The Baby Dry diapers have 3 layers to move the wetness around the diaper, in case your baby is sleeping in one spot. This is also a really great option, it is just not quite as good as the Swaddlers!
Umbilical Cord – Newborn Notch
All newborns come into the world with a small stump that will slowly heal and disappear within few weeks. Because this sticks you need to have a diaper that takes that into consideration. Both the Baby Dry diapers and the Swaddlers have a newborn notch in their smallest sizes to keep this area of your child free and help make them more comfortable.
If you are going to stick your baby in a diaper you want it to stay on. That is where the stretchy sides really come in handy. They help to keep the diapers fixed and yet still allow your young one to move.
Both the Pampers Baby Dry and Swaddlers have this feature!
Which Pampers Is Right For Your Child?
Swaddlers are the diaper of choice for hospitals according to sales, so it makes sense that everyone loves them for their newborn. They are super comfy, keep your baby dry and help you know when they need to be changed.
If you are on a tight budget then Baby Dry might be a better bet as they offer most of the same features and often for a lot less money.
